Good Morning!
Sorry I have not checked in. Kids went back to school on Monday, somewhat getting back on schedule. Ian is hurt, his hip and he is a kicker, so we have been from doctor to doctor to PT to chiropractor and today we have a surgical consult. Yuck! Poor kid, feel like this happens to him every year, hurt before the stinking football season even starts. Ugh! I've been busy trying to get hours in for my sister's company, playing lots of tennis and taking up cycling with Ken. Heading out for a ride this morning. Then work, then take Ian to the Dr. Lilly's cheer starts today. I will spare y'all the first day of school pics :lol:
Wishing everyone a great day!


Love those pics!! Hope you change your mind & post one. :wink:

Karen, glad to hear you have an electrician coming, don't want you going up in smoke :shock:


So glad to have this checked off the to-do list. Anyone can have one of these in their house; if I hadn't had some electrical work done I never would have known. Poor guy looked like he'd been swimming when he left and he wasn't a big guy, that's how humid it is and he was working in a concrete garage.

"Federal Pacific Electric Stab-Lok panels have long been known to be problematic, and I’ve always called them out as a potential safety hazard, but for the past several years I’ve been much more ‘aggressive’ with the way that I report them. While performing a home inspection, I used to recommend having these panels evaluated by an electrician and replaced if neccessary, but now I just skip the whole recommendation thing. I tell my clients to have the panels replaced.

To understand why, here are a few key points:

Federal Pacific Electric (FPE) sold millions of panels between the 1950’s and 1980’s.
Testing by the Consumer Product Safety Commision has shown these breakers to have an unacceptably high rate of failure, which creates a safety hazard.
Testing has proven that virtually every panel installed in the United States contains defective breakers.
FPE falsified their UL testing, making their UL listing void.
Approximately 1 out of 3 breakers are defective.
If a breaker fails to trip when it should, the wires in the home that are supposed to be protected can start on fire.

And Maryanne's husband told me I should to be safe :wink:
